Happy New Year!

The New Year is waiting in the wings. The holidays have come and gone and the promise of spring is in my heart and on my mind.
What do I need to do to end this year and begin the new one?
Nothing really it is just going to happen. That is the beauty of life. It just keeps moving forward.
The sand of time waits for no one.
Refection brings me to a new place. A magical place of evaluation. A place where I get the opportunity to release the unwanted and decide what I will keep as an active energy in my life now.
The most important thing that I have learned in 2008 is compassion. I have compassion for myself which allows me to be more compassionate with others.
I always thought of myself as a compassionate person but a deepening understanding has shown me ways that I may improve .
I choose to release the voice in my head that has harsh words for anyone or anything, including myself.
I stand arms spread wide. I welcome love. I forgive every error of the past and commit to happiness.
I release who I thought I was suppose to be and commit to authenticity. This will change the way I do everything. It will bring ease and grace.
Thank you all for your contributions to my life in 2008. I want to start listing but I don't want to leave one of you out. So I ask that you remember what we have shared in 2008 and know that my life has been better for having known you and shared a part of this earth time with you.
I am so grateful for the whimsy. I respect the knowledge shared. I am stronger for seeing your courage. I bless you all for the open sharing of your stories and your lives.
We are powerful beings. May your minds be clear and your hearts be full of perfect creative expression. Most of all I send you love. Let's all have a New Year filled with the best that life has to offer.
Cheers, Lilli
